ensure maximum uptime, we have use a fully redundant
network. This includes the following:
Redundant Network Connections
We are connected via 3 primary different carriers, should
1 fail the system is switched over automatically on
our routers to ensure your server is still up. Our connections
AAPT, Connect (Dual Australian circuit), Datafast, Pipenetworks,
Powertel and Vivanet. Our circuits are un metered.
Redundant Cisco Routers
In the event a router goes down, all data is re-routed
to our backup router. Also if there are any upgrades
to be performed to the primary router, the secondary
takes over to ensure no downtime is experienced.
This method of routing automatically switches your packets
of information in the event the path is blocked between
us and it's destination
The Data Center 1 and 2 are both located in the heart
of Brisbane in Queen Street and Creek Street. Both are
a true Teir 1 Data Center with the following features:
In the event that a power outage occurs in the city.
The UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)takes over whilst
the generator starts up. Once the generator has started
it takes over and powers the data center. In the event
that the first UPS is faulty it automatically switches
over to a second UPS
Located within the building is a backup diesel generator.
In the event of a prolonged power outage the generator
can power the data center for 3 days before refueling.
The system is tested and maintained monthly.
Redundant Air Conditioning Humidity/Climate
Redundant air condition ensures your servers stay cool,
if 2 isn't enough there is also an emergency backup
air conditioner. Humidity control keep the environment
VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Agent)
This is a special gas that in the event of a fire, releases
a gas in the room. This gas puts out the fire before
spreading and is harmless to humans and electronic equipment.
The data centre is monitored 24/7 by Powertel and ourselves.
This ensures that the uptime is maintain and should
a problem occur, will be resolved quickly and efficiently.
Big Boys' Choice
Many of Australias largest telecos are also in the same
room. Telstra, Datafast, Optus, TPG, iiNet and more).
